Ciresi to hold Unclaimed Property & SEPTA Senior Key Card Event on Tuesday
Sign-ups will be held at Pottstown Regional Public Library from 1 p.m.-3 p.m.
POTTSTOWN, Sept. 30 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi will host an event spotlighting unclaimed property and SEPTA Key cards for seniors from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4 at the Pottstown Regional Public Library.
Staff from Ciresi’s office will be processing applications for SEPTA Senior Key cards, checking to see if individuals have unclaimed property, and helping complete unclaimed property claim forms.
“The PA treasury holds billions of dollars in unclaimed property,” Ciresi said. “It is important that people in our community are aware of this and receive the money they are possibly owed.”
According to the PA Treasury, 1 in 10 Pennsylvanians have unclaimed property, which often goes missing due to small errors like a misspelled name or an out-of-date address. Common sources of unclaimed property include uncashed checks, inactive bank and financial accounts, and undeliverable insurance payments.
Along with highlighting unclaimed property, Ciresi’s event will give seniors an opportunity to obtain a SEPTA Senior Key card. The fare card allows seniors 65 and older to ride free at all times on all SEPTA transit routes (bus, trolley, subway, and Norristown High Speed Line) and Regional Rail lines within Pennsylvania, and discounted half-fares for Regional Rail out-of-state travel to Delaware and New Jersey.
“The SEPTA Senior Key card is a great benefit that our seniors can enjoy, letting them travel SEPTA’s network with ease,” Ciresi said. “I’m glad that my office can make applying for these cards more accessible and convenient to seniors in western Montgomery County through our partnership with SEPTA.”
